It used to be that you could purchase a ticket to DW and that ticket was good forever. Essentially, you locked in your price and used your ticket when you decided you were ready. But DW changed it’s policy to force the public to choose the dates on which they want to attend. This allowed DW to increase its prices for its busiest days, but created no advantage for the consumer.
As DW required, I purchased tickets for DW for a particular date range. When DW accepted my money, a contract was created. My money in exchange for entry on a specific set of dates. It now appears that DW will not be open on those dates. This means that DW is unable to fulfill its end of the contract we agreed to. But instead of refunding my money, DW wants to change the terms of the contract and “allow” me to use my ticket on another date.
I know some will say, “But it’s not DW’s fault that they could not allow me to enter the parks on the agreed upon dates, and therefore, DW is not liable for the contract default.” But this is nonsense. Whether it is a hurricane, a plague of locusts, or this dreadful virus - regardless of the reason - if DW cannot provide what it agreed to, when it accepted my money, a refund is due. The terms of the contract cannot be changed after it is entered into, which happened DW accepted my money.
I do not wish to go to DW on dates other than those I originally agreed to go. My priorities have changed. I believe DW owes me, and all other folks who cannot attend on the date for which their tickets were purchased, a full refund. Am I the only one who feels this way? Where is the outrage from all of those folks who are now stuck with thousands of dollars in tickets they cannot use?
As always, I love this forum and its members. Thanks for allowing me to vent here.
